To Enclose Your Pool Or Not

To Enclose Your Pool Or Not - Hive Outdoor Living

To enclosure your pool or not is a common question we often hear at Hive Outdoor Living

The short answer is, “It depends.”

On what does it depend? Several points, actually.

An enclosure can actually assist you in many ways taking care of your pool. First and foremost, perhaps, is that an enclosure will dramatically reduce the amount of debris from entering your pool water, especially leaves. And, while many people have an automatic pool cleaner installed, when a lot of leaves and other types of debris enter your water it can take a while before your water is once again crystal clear.

An enclosure will help extend the amount of time to enjoy your pool. This ties into helping keep it clean, simply because you are spending less time getting leaves out of your pool so you can actually enjoy swimming.

As well, screened enclosures assist in filtering some of the UV rays from the sun. This can result in being able to enjoy your pool for longer lengths of time with a little less worry about sunburns.

Of course, living in Florida means there are times of hurricanes and strong winds. Pool enclosures have been designed to generally handle winds up to 120-130 miles per hour, so chances are they will be able to withstand most anything nature throws our way.

One of the biggest benefits, however, has to do with being far more comfortable around your pool because their are fewer bugs and insects hoovering around you and your family. While the pests are still able to enter your screened-in area, that generally only occurs when a door to the outside of the pool perimeter is open while they are nearby and they manage to sneak into the enclosed area. Otherwise, your screen is able to protect you from insects and bugs to a very large degree and this definitely increases the amount of fun time for you and your family.

Depending upon your design, your screened-in pool becomes an actual extension to your home and living space when connected to your patio roof. You may be able to walk out of your slider and are instantly immersed in your backyard paradise.

To be fair, there are a couple of other, possibly less desirable, factors to consider.

Screened enclosures are not necessarily maintenance free. Over time, an enclosure may develop mold or mildew which would need to be pressure washed. While the amount of time this would take is far less than cleaning leaves every day, it is something to take into account.

The other, which does not happen that often, is when a screen gets torn or damaged. An example may be if a heavy branch were to break free from a large tree and fell into the screen. Not an easy fix when over the pool, but not an impossible task, either.

At Hive Outdoor Living we will help you Create Your Own Paradise, with or without a screened enclosure. The choice is entirely up to you. And, if you decide to install an enclosure, there are different styles from which to choose.

Pool Design & Environment

Pool Design and Environment - Hive Outdoor Living

From Hive Outdoor Living

In order to Create Your Own Paradise there needs to be a starting point. At Hive Outdoor Living, the #1 Tampa pool builder, that begins with finding out exactly what you would like to see in your backyard with a pool design and environment you will love for years to come.

Aside from swimming pools and spas, Hive Outdoor is greatly experienced in the quality installation of screen enclosures, outdoor television and audio, outdoor kitchens and barbecue areas, fire pits, fencing, and automation. Our expert crews can also install decks and paths, lawns or your complete landscaping requirements.

And, the manner in which we accomplish this is quite unique.

As you discuss your ideas for a pool design with our professional designer, you will see a remarkably detailed three-dimensional rendering of your entire outdoor living space take shape, including your home and existing landscaping and how your new swimming pool compliments and integrates its surroundings.

This Hive Outdoor Living technique ensures the most favorable and optimum usage of your existing details and backyard elements in order to create your perfect living and entertainment environment.

However, if you are not sure what you would like, but are able to tell us which outdoor activities that you and your family most enjoy, we can design your pool and surrounds with our recommendations and suggestions, with the goal of pleasing and satisfying your desires.

Either way, whether it is your concept or ours, as your plan is nearing completion, through the power of Virtual Reality, we will take you on a virtual tour of your yard in order to view and explore what lies ahead.

Another option is to Create Your Own Paradise in phases. By that we mean, when you have provided us with your ultimate dream details, we can build it one step at a time. In other words, the pool is installed first with perhaps a screen enclosure. The next phase includes enhancing your backyard living area with a kitchen, fire pit and seating area. And perhaps the last stage is the expert installation of a large screen television and audio system with stereo surround sound.

At Hive Outdoor Living, our highly-talented designers love to work with our clients to create their ideal outdoor living space. If you can dream it, we can build it.
